Monitors that support S Switch

  /   2021-05-14

What is an S-Switch:

The S-Switch is ZOWIE’s exclusive wired controller that makes it easier to navigate through monitors’ settings menus. Instead of having to use buttons built into the monitor, the S-Switch is equipped with a scroll wheel and return button for easy navigation. In addition to the dedicated input switch button, there are also three buttons at the bottom, so that you can easily switch between optimized profiles for your main games.

How to save profiles to your S-Switch:

1. Adjust your current monitor settings to your preferred viewing experience through the OSD.

2. Hold the number you want to save the profile to for 5 seconds.

3. A pop-up and beep (if enabled) will notify you that your profile is saved.

4. Your setting is now saved and can be accessed by tapping the associated number.

Tips and Tricks:

Because not one display profile fits all applications, we recommend taking advantage of the full capability of the S-Switch by creating settings for each of the three profile buttons. For example, if you find that your preferred viewing experience for gameplay isn’t ideal for web browsing, you can save one mode specifically for web browsing to quickly switch between modes.

Another unique feature of the S-Switch is that it can also operate as an independent device thanks to its built-in memory. This means that if you participate in a tournament using compatible monitors*, you can plug in your own S-Switch and quickly have access to all of the settings that you saved at home.

*The S-Switch included with the XL2546K can also be used (or purchased separately) for XL2540K and XL2411K monitors as an optional accessory. Older models with S-Switch functionality are only compatible with the S-Switch originally provided with the monitor.
